At stage 3a kidney disease, not yet needing dialysis, you can still live a long time, but you know you have to change your behavior to accomplish that. Apparently you have no one in your corner to help you, so you have to fight for your future self, and you have to focus on your mental health to do that. People recover from drug addiction and alcoholism all the time, same for binge eating. No one says it's easy, but it can certainly be done. At this point, you are your own worst enemy, so concentrate on your future self. No one here can do that for you.

If you aren't going to do anything about it what difference does it make what will happen first? however to answer your question,continued binging will render you morbidly obese if you arent there already, Diabetese soon to follow where all your organs start to deteriorate,you will be a prime candidate for stroke/heart attack, vision problems will probably leave you blind and you will also become increasingly less mobile as time wears on. Then theres the cost in treating all your upcoming medical maladies,hope you have very good insurance,.

I have never been overweight. I never allow myself to pass a certain weight. I am 145 lbs. That's considered fat for me. My normal weight is 135 lbs. My lowest is 130 lbs. I am vegan. Just by being vegetarian I lost weight. I weight less now than I did in high school. I was 150 lbs in high school. When I reach my maximum which is 145 lbs that itself is motivation to lose weight so now that I reached my maximum it's time to eat normal the first week and then exercise the second. My weight changes. Once I lose all the weight or some of it I gain it back again.

The bolded part tells us that you CAN exercise control. I am assuming you live alone with no one to support you emotionally? If I were you, I would get back into therapy and join one or more support groups, even online support groups. I know what it's like to binge eat certain foods, I myself used to do it and I became overweight and developed Type 2 diabetes. Potato chips and sweets were also my downfall. But I got control of myself, changed my eating habits and started exercising, lost all the weight and am much healthier.

I would also advise not to buy or bring into the house potato chips or any other food that you can't control yourself over. If it's not there, you can't eat it. At first, try to substitute with similar but a bit healthier foods - maybe unsalted popcorn or something. You CAN do this, but you need to WANT to do this. I am thinking you might be suffering depression, and again, therapists can help you with that.

Good luck to you!

OP, have you ever seen a nutritionist? It seems to me that you need some nutritional guidance in conjunction with the therapy. I just don't see how mental health counseling alone will work if the physical diet you've been on has not provided the essential macro and micro nutrients we all need to be happy and healthy. The binge/starve/vegetarian/vegan pattern you've established has likely created some nutritional deficiencies that contribute to your body's urge to eat. You can control it mentally for awhile, but, similar to trying to hold your breath too long, the body will overrule the mind and seek what it needs to survive.

In light of your kidney and other medical issue, it should be a professional guiding you. Perhaps your primary care doctor or the therapist you saw can recommend one.

I agree. Psychotherapy and personal nutritional guidance are the OP's missing links. It has been discussed in another thread by the OP. http://www.city-data.com/forum/55388618-post20.html

It looks like doctors just like to over exaggerate. I am sure I do have chronic kidney disease and I am the stage they say but they been telling me I can die since age 12 like it was going to happen back then. I am 35 years old now. Why am I still alive and I've had high blood pressure since then and don't take medication. I thought I was supposed to be dead by now just by having high blood pressure for that long.
